in the colorado movie theater have renewed the debate of gun control. state senator leland yee has introduced a bill to clamp down on guns. josh, california has the most strict ban on assault weapons. why does senator yee feel it is inadequate? >> there is a loophole. senator yee introduced this in may. this is a bullet button. the law as it exists says that magazines that can be removed by a normal push button as would ordinarily would happen with other features like a telescoping stock are already banned under california law. the law essentially requires that magazines be fixed in the gun or require a tool to remove or replace them in order to slow down the reloading process. what some gun manufacturers started doing was to sell kits to modify the button to use the tip of a bullet or a magnet that you pass over it, thus, using a tool. it can be done in seconds. you put the kit on and change the magazine out just askly quic as you would other circumstances. senator yee's bill seeks to ban that mechanism. he introduced it in may. i talked to him last night. he said he did not see a lot of ent

weeks. leland vittert in the middle east bureau with the latest. >> reporter: this could be the a decisive one in the syrian civil war going on more than a year. a rebel loss here would not only deny them a base of operations, it would also prove very costly in terms of lives and ammunition on the same time a the government would continue to push the rebels out and leave them on the run. this is the latest video, amateur video coming out of the town of aleppo. it shows the syrian army vastly outgunning and outmaneuvering those rebels. the syrian army has not only aircraft in terms of fighter jets to bomb the rebels but also heavy artillery and tanks to take on those rebels, many of whom are armed very heatly indeed. in the past two weeks we've seen in aleppo the reports coming out do not look good at all for the rebels as the rebels continue to fight bravely, often times with antique guns. they are being pushed back. they're running low on ammunition. they're running low on medical supplies and many, many rebels are continuing to lose their lives. also there's a big civil

sanctions against syria's regime. leland vittert is live in our middle east bureau in jerusalem with that update. leland? >> reporter: hi, jon. the syrian rebels head really hoped that the town of aleppo was going to become their new base of operations where they could resupply from, where they could regroup from, provide medical care to wounded soldiers. day by day, though, the rebels seem to be getting less and less good news. the syrian goth seems to be winning more and more. in fact, just today the syrian government took control of a major neighborhood there in aleppo. the latest amateur video coming out of the embattled city does show us this is turning into an insurgency war meaning the rebels are fighting with ak-47s and mortar rounds. on the other side, though, you have the syrian army with entire battalions of tanks, heavy artillery, helicopter gunships and fighter aircraft to take on these rebels. it has been compared to a very tragic war of whack-a-mole, remember the old game where the insurgents would pop up in one area as they are doing in aleppo, the government com
are describing as a civil war that shows no signs of letting up. leland vittert is in jerusalem with more. leland? >> reporter: it has been a long time, jenna. this latest offensive by the rebels shows the government has been unable to crush them especially in the town of aleppo where they said they were beginning a final battle in the city to retake it from the rebels. that simply has not happened. on the other hand the rebels have been saying for a long time they would control the city. they haven't been able to do so either. new video coming out shot by amateur photographers inside aleppo shows rebels wit very light weapons, machine guns, rpg's. president assad has his air force and heavy artillery. we've been learning last few days he has been using heavy art timberry targeting civilians showing up in bread lines in the fighting street-to-street. civilians are very unusually in the line of fire. activists are reporting a weekly death toll this week of some 1600 people and tins of thousands of civilians are now fleeing into neighboring turkey and jordan. turkey has asked the u.n. to set up saf
heavy toll on innocent civilians. jon: leland vittert is covering the conflict live from jerusalem. this downed plane, leland, how significant is that? >> jon, if the roesch bells were actually able to shoot down a syrian mig it would be a game-changer in this civil war. it is these migs that the syrian government used to bomb civilian targets and take aim at rebel strongholds. let's look at the video. this is sub plipd by rebel amateur video. shows a mig flying low over the city. something happening. we hear anti-aircraft fire and large explosion. there is a rebel chanting, god is great, "allahu akbar!". according to the government the pilot ejected from the plane. it was not shot down by rebels but crashed during a routine training exercise. no way to confirm either way. it points to the use of syrian air power by the government there with almost impunity it has been going on for so long. jon, there was talk about a no-fly zone over syria much like the no-fly zone over syria. the syrian air force can basically do whatever they want. if they shot down one of the syrian air force p
hoping to find refuge there in their country. leland vittert is live in jerusalem watching all of these developments. leland? >> reporter: hi, jenna. right now we not only have the humanitarian crisis on our hands but also appears though the rebels are really losing ground in the battle for aleppo. street-to-street fighting there, the rebels are running low on ammunition. the casualties are mounting and it appears nothing is sacred anymore. take a look at this video from earlier yesterday at a funeral. [shouting] [gunfire] that was an artillery shell landing in the middle of a funeral procession in the southern part of the country. in aleppo the street battles continue. the rebels hoped to claim aleppo as their base. from there they could resupply and launch attacks out as they try to take a foothold in one part of the country. that is the reason the syrian army is hitting back so hard, particularly in the northern part of the country. a win for the rebels means they have a foothold. it also means they're showing to the world they have become a cohesive fight force. a win i gov
in afghanistan. tonight's football game will be played at leland high school. that's where pat tillman was once a star line backer. the game begins at 7 p.m. >>> right new it's 6:49. want to check back in with sal. what are you keeping an eye on, sal? >> looking at the commute in the east bay, pam, and just looking at that. so far it looks much better than it normally would. , for example, on interstate 880 here northbound and southbound, that's a nice- looking drive. as a matter of fact it continues to look good all the way up to downtown oakland. now if you are driving on the bay bridge approach it has been very nice with no major problems. if you're driving let's say to the peninsula, southbound 101 traffic is moving along pretty well headed down to the burr link game. we had the crash in front of the airport. that has been cleared up, and there are no troubles on 11. san ma day yes bridge looks good. 6:50. let's go to rosemary. >> a notable drop in temperatures on tap for your friday. a live look over san rafael. you can see plenty of gray out there. just a little peak of sun. we eventuall
were jammed about four miles, but you can see further south as you make your way commute from leland. you are, again, hitting heavy volume in that area. and back over to 395, as you make your way southbound, have an accident there blocking the exit for 3b. hopefully, it should be clearing, but right now that exit ramp still shut. aaron? >> thank you, danella. >>> emotions are running high right now on the campaign trail. president obama and mitt romney stepping up their attacks on one another, and medicare is once again proving to be a hot-button issue for the candidates. nbc's claire leka is live on capitol hill with more on what they're saying this morning. claire? >> reporter: good morning to you, aaron. it's really been a war of words between president obama and gop rival mitt romney, with statements like "unhinged" and "hate" going back and forth and in blistering fashion, the candidates are going at it on the latest hot topic of the campaign, and that is medicare. now, president obama was joined by the first lady on his third and last day of campaigning in iowa. he attacked gop
people and injured 100 others. leland is live. >> it's unclear right now as we are trying to figure out is the syrian air force targeting that residential neighborhood as a warning to the civilians there supporting the rebels if that area, or were they trying to hit a opposition depot nearby? either way the results are horrific and it is difficult at best to watch parents dig through the rubble trying to find their children. many of the 40 killed were indeed children. of the hundred wounded a lot went to the hospital, the hospital became overwhelmed, they had to lock the door and send people across the border to turkey for medical care. this highlights a couple of issues, the syrian rebels do not have the ability to combat president bashar al-assad's air power and are unable to hold any ground as this war goes forward. number two, there is a huge deficit of medical splice to deasupplies to deal with mass casualties events that happen during this civil war. despite this horrific news and the news that the syrian government is bombing civilian targets the russian government said today the
has broken out in damascus and aleppo. leland vittert joins us live. have the rebels been able to make nay gains in recent efforts. >> reporter: it looks like bad news for the rebel, more good news for the government who has taken some key neighborhoods there in damascus, the capitol where shelling continues. the video we're seeing from the rebels fighting aleppo where they've given up other key neighborhoods seems to show them very badly out done and pleas to the international community for weapons and ammunition have so far gone unnoticed and unsupplied there in the northern part of the country. the rebels in aleppo have a little bit of a home field advantage. that doesn't seem to be helping them that much as most of the fighters are fighting on the streets they grew up on. martha: what is the latest on the syrian chemical stockpiles we talked so much about a couple of days ago? >> reporter: this is the big concern. syria has one of the largest supplies of chemical witnesses in the entire middle east. he said the use of the chemical weapons or them leaving the deep pose could be a ca
, though, the opposition is holding on. leland vittert is live in our middle east bureau in jerusalem. what is the latest on the ground? >> reporter: every day seems to be less and less good news for the rebels, more and more wins for the government, who as of today seem to have denied the syrian opposition any kind of foothold inside aleppo they won the battle for a key neighborhood. what we are seeing from the latest amateur video is it's shaping up to be an insurgent war the rebels lightly armed, and then the syrian army with tanks, artillery and attack aircraft. it's been like end to a tragic game of the game wack-a-mole where you have the rebels pop up in one city, the government comes and wa wacks them down there and neither side has the ability to change the balance of power. heather: do clinton's upcoming meetings about syria mean too much? >> it doesn't seem the syrians think so. the u.s. is promising greater sanctions on syria and some of it's lead tk*er. the leaders. they brush that off. the thing on the minds is foreign fighters. religious extremists from libya or iraq. they hav
